RONAN Murray has finally completed his loan move to League Two Swindon Town.

The diminutive striker will team up with former West Ham, Juventus and AC Milan striker Paolo Di Canio, now in charge of the Robins, after agreeing a switch until January 14.

Murray scored twice for Town in their friendly win over the Hammers on Tuesday afternoon, but he leaves with Paul Jewell’s blessing.

Speaking this morning, the Town boss said: “He needs to go out and get games. I think he’ll score goals and another spell away will give him a huge lift.”

The former Town academy striker spent time at Torquay United on loan last year and has also been capped at Under-19s level by the Republic of Ireland.

The move has had Football League clearance but a spokesman for Swindon said they are still awaiting FA clearance – though this won’t hinder the deal.

The 20-year-old is expected to be eligible for Saturday’s clash with Aldershot Town at the County Ground.

  • Its all well n good letting players out on loan to get games if you are bringing in or have players good enough to keep him out of the squad and as far as i can see we have neither,he puts on a great show for the reserves and then gets shipped out we could do with five or six of the first team going out to lower league clubs to remind them what a privilege it is to put on the blue n white shirt and give the youngsters a chance after all they can do no worse than what we have seen in the last four games,perhaps also this would signal to players that there are no favorites and you play on merit.

  • Actually he needs to stay in and get games. Until lazy Town managers (and cruel, unrealistic Town 'fans') stop their short term thinking and actually have the courage to see if young players can grow into the role, Town will stay trapped in this mind-numbing spiral of stagnation and decline based on yo-yoing cheap alternatives in and out of the revolving door.

Watching Ipswich Town finish their home campaign with a 3-2 win over MK Dons on Saturday was akin to the feeling a high handicap golfer gets playing a couple of decent shots down the 18th hole of a mixed round.
